Starting Internet Automatically?

Im sorry if there is a thread on this, as I thought there would surly be:

In order to log into the internet in my slackware 10.1, I have to log in as root and enter the commands:


then I can exit, and log in as my user account. Is there anyway to have these commands entered automaticaly at startup?

If your wondering, I have to enter "start-pppoe" because I have bell sympatico and I had to pull some shinanigans to get it to work.

Add that to your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file or get a dsl router that saves PPOE(which all do).
